Tom Jones Receives Apology for 'Sick Joke' Remark

July 12, 2010 (5:53 am) GMT
His record label's boss has apologized for writing e-mail to his colleagues that Jones' new album is not going to score.

Crooner has received an apology from a record label boss over a leaked email which described his spiritual new album as a "sick joke". The veteran star signed a multi-million dollar contract with Island Records last October and is set to release his latest disc, "", at the end of this month.

An email from Island's vice president David Sharpe to his colleagues at the company revealed he was thoroughly unimpressed with the new tracks - he slammed Jones' sound and told co-workers to "pull back this project immediately or get my money back".

But Sharpe has since apologized to Jones for the comments. The "It's Not Unusual" hitmaker tells Britain's Sunday Telegraph newspaper, "They've apologized. They can't apologize enough."
